Her neighbour saw her collapsed body on the stairs  to her home in Enugu and rushed her to the  hospital (Niger foundation) but her Blood pressure was very high, she was in coma for 3days with oxygen before she was even taken to another  hospital for  CT brain test, where doctors were waiting for her to come out from coma before treating her well or do brain surgery till she died by 2am on Saturday morning…she’s like a sister  to me and Mama G, we have been in tears since the incident. She is survived by 3kids who are currently in the university.”

  9. She apparently died as a result of untreated hypertension, that was diagnosed at the time of death. The malaria and typhoid are just minor co-morbidities. Consequently she had a stroke that put her in coma and eventually killed her. Nigerians should realise the need and importance of yearly health checks especially after age 25. May her soul rest in peace.
